Hello, hello, hello and welcome to an important encounter for Sarina Wiegman’s side. She’s not calling it a must-win – “it’s a want-to-win” – but England really do need to get it together if they want to avoid the Euro 2025 qualifying playoffs. They’re currently third in Group A3 after losing 2-1 to France on Friday at St James’ Park, both of the visitors’ goals coming from corners. In another blow, the current European champions will be without Mary Earps, who suffered a hip injury last week. The good news? A chance for revenge has come quickly. Kick-off’s at 8pm BST.

Key events

One thing to keep an eye on tonight: how England respond to France’s set-pieces after what happened the other day. “Wiegman’s players suffered a full-on relapse of the alarming dead-ball disease that derailed them during the latter days of Phil Neville’s tenure,” wrote Louise Taylor.

A half-century for Ella Toone.

So just the one change for England, which is a forced one: Hannah Hampton replaces the injured Mary Earps. France make two: Grace Geyoro and Amandine Henry replace Delphine Cascarino and Sandie Toletti.
